I have known great pain,
substantial anguish tears at me.
But with me a touch of your hand
shall shatter all that ails me.
You bring into my life great joy
a joy that engulfs the pain in my world.
I have been brought back to life,
life that was cold and gray,
is now electrified and on fire.
A fire that burns in reality. . . .
A fire that has not destroyed nerve endings,
but excites until my heart beats faster,
until I lose my breath and lose consciousness,
when I wake we kiss and the journey starts over. . .
Timothy Michael DiVito c 2019
